courtesy of Nike This morning, the team at Nike announced the Fuelband SE, a souped-up version of its popular fitness tracker that launched last year. The SE, available starting Nov. 6, will provide all the same functionalities of the original, like tracking your movement all day in NikeFuel points -- but there are lots of exciting extras in this model.
The tech team over at Nike outdid themselves with the SE, which will help users keep track of stuff you'd think would only be available to professional athletes. You can fine-tune the band to a specific sport (even yoga!) and the SE has a super seal for better water resistance -- they say you can wear this baby in the shower! It also tracks hours and minutes slept.

A few of our other fave features:
* Sessions: The SE will track specific activities throughout the day. So if you're hitting the gym or going out for a run, each of those can be marked as Sessions, allowing you to track how much NikeFuel earned during that time -- and of course, to your daily goal of NikeFuel points.
* NikeFuel Rate: Think of this as your workout intensity measurement. You'll be able to see the Fuel earned per minute, and the easy color coding -- from red to green -- helps give you that mental push to reach your fitness goal.

* Groups: Interested in becoming part of a diet or fitness community? FuelBand SE users can join Nike Plus friends in a group and share their latest achievements, cheer each other on and even work together toward a single goal.
At $149 a pop, you can pre-order your FuelBand today at nike.com/fuelband -- but you won't have it around your wrist quite yet. How many days till November 6 again?
